The President's Message

November 2008

Paul Westefer

HAPPY HOLIDAYS! For CIPCUG members, that means the club meetings will be on the third Saturday of the month: Nov. 15 and Dec. 20.

In addition to the scheduled presenter for December, Craig Ladd, CIPCUG vice president and program chairman, has invited Old Saint Nick, a.k.a. Santa Claus, the world-famous presenter. This will be a meeting you won't want to miss.

Speaking of Christmas presents, have you considered giving a CIPCUG membership to a relative, friend, or your boss (you might even get a promotion).

New individual memberships are only $40 -- less than 11 cents a day. Membership for families at the same address is only $55 a year.

In addition to the benefits members already receive, the Board of Directors is planning new programs for the new year. This would be a great time to give a gift membership to someone who is a new computer user or switching to Windows XP or Vista. Plans are being made for Special Interest Group meetings for Beginners and for members who want to broaden the usefulness of their computers, sites with information on financial matters, OpenOffice 3, etc.
